Meet Callie. I've been begging one of my students to PLEASE bring his puppy to school so I could see her before she grows up. His family was blessed with her this Christmas. I agree with Charles Schulz - Happiness is a warm puppy. It was freezing out in the school parking lot, but well worth it. Isn't she adorable?
Guess who The Angel Pie of Texas is? Yes, you're right! It's Sue of Collect in Texas Gal and SuKnitWitty. She called me the other night. We talked and talked like we'd known each other for one hundred years. Isn't that amazing? When we blog, we share so much of ourselves and it allows others to REALLY get to know us. Sue and I had so much to talk about! Today, a white box came in the mail and I couldn't wait to open it because I won a pearly-faced angel on Sue's birthday. Look what else was in the box? Oh that Sue. She gives and gives and gives some more! She's amazing! She knows I love Raggedy Ann, so now I have two more little darlings. She made Sam a cuddly little blanket. Do you see the cute Ann frame? I wish my face looked like Raggedy Ann's. Sue wrote me a very dear letter, too. I wish she didn't live so far away from me. I loved hearing her sweet Texas voice for the first time. She sounds like someone with a golden heart, someone who has made kind choices all her life. I think the Blog Fairy really likes me, sending such sweetie pies my way.
Stay tuned for Pink Saturday. I have something fun planned. I won't post tomorrow because I'm going to be busy getting ready for it! TGIF! The kids at school are wonderful and they've been dear this week, but I'm ready for the weekend. Brad is getting installed as the new pastor of his church so we'll go up for that. I'm excited! I'll post some photos of his little church. I hope that your Friday is filled with thankful feelings and that you have some rosy encounters with a couple really nice people. I'm working on my Nice People Hall of Fame. I had some sweet, sweet comments and I must say, "There are many really sweet somebodies out there!" YOU are one of those sweet somebodies. I have good books to read so my flannel-clad bed is beckoning. Thank you so much for popping in for a nice little hello!
